The University of Delaware men’s golf team will compete in five tournaments prior to participating in the Colonial Athletic Association conference championship, Blue Hen head coach Mike Keogh said in announcing the squad’s 2017 spring schedule.
UD will open the campaign on March 19-21 at the Kingsmill Intercollegiate at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia, before competing in the Villanova Wildcat Invitational at White Manor Country Club in Malvern, Pennsylvania, on March 27-28.
The Blue Hens will participate in The Manor Intercollegiate hosted by Longwood at The Manor Golf Club in Farmville, Virginia, on April 1-2, and the following week will take part in the Finegan Invitational hosted by La Salle at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, on April 10.
UD will head to the Rhode Island Invitational at Quidnessett Country Club in Naragansett on April 17-18, before wrapping up the year at the Colonial Athletic Association championship at Salisbury Country Club in Midlothian, Virginia, on April 21-23.
The Blue Hens are coming off a successful fall season that saw UD post three top-four finishes and claim the Colgate/Alex Lagowitz Memorial Invitational title. Marc Oliveri was the medalist at the tournament, and led the Blue Hens with a 72.00 average round during the fall. Jack Gianniny was second on the team with a 72.17 stroke average, and posted a team-high three top-10 finishes. Blaine Lafferty (72.25 average round), Kieran Purcell (73.75) and Mark Benevento (74.58) also competed in all five tournaments for UD.
